Antichamber is a game that not only tests a player's problem solving abilities, but also tests how well a player can accept and adapt to a strange new logic. Most puzzles are designed not only in a challenging way, but an entertaining way. For each one you solve, you don't feel as if you've completed a chore, but rather that you've discovered something new in something that you already enjoyed.

It's hard to say too much about this game without spoiling it. It's one of the most unique puzzle games out there, with multiple paths through it and a great ending.

Completed it after playing for far longer than the average :( I think I loved it, except when I hated it. Definately worth the price to find out for yourself.

Antichamber was clearly inspired by Portal in its basics concepts, sure it has puzzels and an unusual gun but it stops there. The major plus about this game is its hability to teach you how to think like him. I'm sure that you, be the half of it will stop and think "wait a second", and try something that would be crazy, but not in this game, because it will tottaly work.
Sure there are a few dead end rooms with little to no purpose, and very few puzzles that require a little too much thinking outside the box, but nothing that ruins the experience of a very cool and creative puzzle game.

Pros:
-stupid good level design
-creative puzzles
-makes you think you're crazy

Cons:
-can be frustrating in some points, be cool and take your time

I wholly and heartily recommend this game. I spent hours playing it, trying to discover as much as I could about it. I really can't say much else, because if I do, I risk spoiling it for you.

Buy it.
Play it.
Love it.
Spread it.

I actually think this game is better than The Witness (which is still a good game). It's taken me 2.5 years to get the green gun (I was playing for a day, giving up, leaving it for 6 months then trying again!). I finally drew the map out on paper, wrote everything I know down and used a bit of intelligence to progress. Superb puzzle game!

If you're looking for a challenge, oh boy this game has a surprise for you...
By the time you figure out what's happening you'll be so sucked in that you won't be able to quit...

Antichamber is an incredibly fun puzzle game, just be warned, your logic has no meaning here. The game uses your 'common sense' against you, and forces you to think in new ways. It can be challenging at times and rewarding at others, and the quotes you find along the way magnify the experience and can clue you in to the solution. Overall I think this game is less about solving puzzles and more about realizing the way we naturally think, and how this can lead to oversights (if only in video games)

Most puzzle games require "thinking outside the box".
Antichamber f##s the box and uses some n-dimensional torus instead.
Try it out, if you think, you are a creative problem solver.
If not, get it, too!

Antichamber is The Stanley Parable of puzzle games.
Well, The Stanley Parable came out later, so The Stanley Parable is the Antichamber of story games.

Antichamber is awesome, it doesn't need to be explained.

And the abilities with the cubes increase nicely too.
